          INTRO:  Am7 - A7 - Am7 - A7


                  Dm         C#dim       Esus4   E
                  with every blink of my eyes,
                  Em      Em/D#
                  I see a new frame
                  Em/D       Em/C#
                  from a lifelong film
                  Em/C  Em/B     Em/A#    Am7 - A7 - Am7 - A7
                  improvised and starring me.


                  Dm         C#dim     Esus4   E
                  so far I'm standing alone.
                  Em         Em/D#
                  no leading lady
                  Em/D         Em/C#
                  has made her entrance.
                  Em/C  Em/B     Em/A#   Am7 - A7 - Am7 - A7
                  maybe there is none at all.


                     C#m
                  so play on,
                      G#m
                  I'm waiting
                  A#
                  until the last reel
                        D#7   A
                  rolls by.


                  Dm           C#dim       Esus4   E
                  a soundtrack plays in my head.
                  Em         Em/D#
                  not like Sinatra,
                  Em/D           Em/C#
                  more like Tchaikovsky,
                  Em/C     Em/B        Em/A#   Am7 - A7 - Am7 - A7
                  songs of things that have no names.


                      C#m
                  the movie
                     G#m
                  continues
                  A#
                  and the projector
                     D#7  A
                  is worn down.


                  Dm           C#dim      Esus4   E
                  I'm still on stage all alone.
                  Em         Em/D#
                  no leading lady
                  Em/D         Em/C#
                  has made her entrance.
                  Em/C  Em/B     Em/A#   Am7 - A7 - Am7(dim5) - A7
                  maybe there is none at all.
